A little while ago, the Süddeutsche ran a special on high end book printing. I’ve been pushing for more multimedia content in our digital edition for a while, so when they asked me to go and do a story on Annette Vogel, a graphic designer-turned-book artist, I used the opportunity to shoot video as well. I was on location for four hours and edited for another five or so. I think this is a perfect example of how you can take a small assignment and really enrich it with just a little extra work.

Yesterday I went to church with Valeria and her granddaughters. I had joined them before, but didn’t really like the pictures I came back with. With the way the church is set up, it’s hard to get a telling image. A low ceiling, a row of columns along the middle of the room, fluorescent light in the main room and tungsten in the altair room all make photographing in the building a virtual nightmare. This shoot went better than the first one, however, and I guess I’ll just have to come to terms with the fact that this is the most I can get out of this situation.
The congregation is quite small, with maybe 40 to 50 regular attendants.
Valeria makes it a point to highlight sections in her bible that the pastor talks about in his sermons.

Yesterday Dreisha and Drejanay finally came home from their summer vacation at their uncle’s place in Oklahoma. Valeria got so excited to see them that she and Paul drove all the way out to her sister’s place in Glasgow, Mo., where her brother and the girls would stop on his way to Columbia.
Valeria’s brother is a slow driver, so she and Paul spent about an hour and a half waiting and chatting at her aunt’s place down the road until he finally arrived with the girls.
The first hug in several weeks.
Back home in Columbia, Dreisha and Drejanay couldn’t wait to see their new rooms…
…and were excited about the new decoration.
